The Army Institute of Technology has begun conducting unique 'Obstacle courses' at the Bombay Engineering Group & Centre. The objective of these courses is to motivate students to take up a career in Indian Armed Forces.
What is the AIT about?
The Army Institute of Technology is a welfare project of the Indian Army where only the children of Army personnel are eligible for admission through a joint entrance examination, which the Supreme Court has approved through a special order.
Brig SK Lahiri (retd), the director of the institute says, "We have been making consistent efforts to motivate students to take up a career in the Indian Armed Forces. Students can also do special obstacle courses at the BEG & Centre, which is in the vicinity of the campus so that they can remain physically fit."
The AIT is a non-aided and non-profit making college functioning under the aegis of Army Welfare Education Society.
